Travel Tips for Waco

Heeeeeyyyyy! Sic Em Bears!

by ATXtraveler

In 1960, Baylor's yell leaders introduced the "Bear Claw" hand signal - made by slightly curving all five fingers inward to form a claw - and the "Sic 'Em Bears" yell.

The key here is not to be scared, the Sic Em Bears call is very benign.

In addition to being used during the yell, the "Bear Claw" is held up during the performance of Baylor's school song, "That Good Old Baylor Line."

Waco's Historic Suspension Bridge

by ATXtraveler

Until late 1869, crossing the Brazos River at Waco could be a risky undertaking. Until then, the only way to cross was by ferry or by fording the river when the water was low. Capt. Shapley Ross had operated a primitive ferry across the river at Waco since 1849. But the Brazos could be treacherous after a rain and sometimes was impassable for days at a time. Commerce, especially the cattle drives coming through the growing town on the Chisholm Trail, needed a more secure crossing.

Construction began with the excavation for the footings of the twin double towers that would anchor the span. The towers, which required 2.7 million locally produced bricks to construct, were topped with crenelated ornamentation resembling a medieval castle. Workmen carried wires across the river to form the massive cables that would support the wooden roadway.
The span was completed in late December 1869, and the first tolls were collected on Jan. 1, 1870. The $141,000 structure -- the first bridge across the Brazos -- was dedicated five days later. The main span was so wide that two stagecoaches could pass each other, and it was 475 feet long.

Not only did the bridge company charge people to cross, but it also collected five cents per head from cattle drovers "for each loose animal of the cattle kind" that used the span. Since the Chisholm Trail went through Waco, a large number of cattle lumbered across, which helped the bridge company to retire its debt. Most drovers, however, still chose the cheaper alternative of swimming their herds across the Brazos.

The Brazos River

by keeweechic

Brazos River is formed by the junction of the Double Mountain Fork and the Salt Fork and flows southeast to empty into the Gulf of Mexico near Freeport. Two large reservoirs north of Waco were formed by the construction on the river of the Possum Kingdom Dam and the Whitney Dam. The Waco Suspension Bridge crosses it.
